Making a Murderer, the hugely popular Netflix documentary series, is predicted to change the way in which mainstream society interprets and discusses the law.
Professor Jeremy Gans, a criminal law expert from the Melbourne Law School, believes that in the coming years there will be a discussion on the ‘Making a Murderer Effect’, where barriers which have traditionally impeded access to information are broken down and jurors become increasingly sceptical.
It is similar to the ‘CSI effect’ that began to be discussed when jurors were seen to have heightened or unrealistic expectations about forensic and police procedures after watching fictional crime television shows, such as Crime Scene Investigation.
